Hello Everyone,

So the time is drawing close to the end now I am going to be in my last transfer soon. I am having mixed feelings of coming home I am not going to lie. I cant believe how fast the time has gone. I am going to miss being on mission so much and I am going to miss all the people that I have seen and met. Mission is truely going to be written on my heart for the rest of my life and I will never forget it.

So now that I am back in my first area things are good and changed at the same time. We have been working on some less actives and been getting some new investigators as well. We had ten investigators at church yesterday along with maybe almost five or so less actives. We are planning on having two baptisms this week and then we have 14 more people on date for June. Lots of possibilities and lots of growth in the area that is for sure.

The weather this side has been turning of cooler. I am going to be leaving in the middle of winter and returning home in the middle of summer. Crazy things are going to happen. There are more strikes happening now this side because whenever it turns off cold people then start fighting for electricity and food and such to keep warm. One of the strikes that has been happening is against the post offices. And it has affected the mission because two of our post offices where they collect and get our mail have been burned down. So if any of you send letters or anything I am not sure if I will ever get them now. So if you want in order to contact me please write to me an email or you can go to and I should get things that way.

I am so sorry for those who I have not replied to who have written me letters. I am making it my personal duty to write back everyone who has written me and getting responses sent off this next week. Although with the mail system going how it is I dont know if you will ever get them but I will try. Thank you all for the love and support you are giving me.

Its been a long time so let me just end with my testamony. I know this church is true. I know there are times when all hope and love and light seem lost. But I know the lord will always be there for each of us. I know there have been times when I have been about to give up that the Lord comes and lifts me up. I know the Lord is mindful of me and of everybody. He knows us each individually and loves us all the same. I know the scriptures are true. I have been reading recently in the old testament about moses and helping the children of israel escape eygpt. I know there are challenges but as long as we hold on I know the lord will strength us to do his will. I am grateful for Thomas S Monson the current prophet today and the example and the words he shares with all of us. I am grateful to all of you and love you all so very much. God be with you till we meet again. or until I write next week. Keep well and the lord near at all times.
